Three tonne LPG powered vehicle delivers toilet rolls to Antarctic Exploration team

The British Antarctic Survey, (BAS) is at the forefront of scientific research on the frozen continent, and to run this team in such extremes of weather requires a massive logistics operation.

Mick Cliff, Stores Manager at BAS explained “Every year we handle around 1000 tonnes of cargo which includes everything from toilet rolls to high-tech scientific equipment. During the summer months, when it is winter in Antarctica we are at our busiest unloading and loading equipment and samples, and so need a reliable truck. The three tonne LPG powered vehicle is one of the latest additions to the fleet and its reliability is crucial to the success of this year’s expedition. We work to strict deadlines as ships will not wait for us so having a vehicle that avoid long downtimes is essential.”
